As the voice of the venture capital and private equity industry, the CVCA advocates strongly for a policy and regulatory environment conducive to stimulating and supporting the vital innovative investments our members make every day to support the growth of Canada’s economy.
Our advocacy centres primarily around three areas of government action: ensuring there is adequate capital in the innovation ecosystem; accessing world class talent that can translate that capital into scalable value; and, a competitive tax and investment régime that rewards the risks associated with the private capital asset class.
Our Primary Focus
Providing a Competitive Tax & Investment Régime
To continue to attract private investment into Canadian entrepreneurial ventures and innovation ecosystem, Canada must maintain a strong, competitive tax and investment régime.
Ensuring Sustainable Capital
The CVCA strongly supports the creation of a third venture capital program to build on the success of VCAP and VCCI, as well as exploring how to attract more diverse sources capital to this asset class.
Accessing World Class Talent
The CVCA works closely with both educational institutions and governments to ensure that Canada continues to cultivate the talent required to fuel innovation and growth.
Advocacy Related to COVID-19
Through iterative, collaborative dialogue with the federal government, the CVCA was successful in achieving the priorities outlined in our letter to the Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade.
